„A Time For Prayer

"In times of war and not before,
God and the soldier we adore.
But in times of peace and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the soldier slighted."

1880s, 1885
Kontextus: It will be a thousand years before Grant's character is fully appreciated. Grant is the greatest soldier of our time if not all time... he fixes in his mind what is the true objective and abandons all minor ones. He dismisses all possibility of defeat. He believes in himself and in victory. If his plans go wrong he is never disconcerted but promptly devises a new one and is sure to win in the end. Grant more nearly impersonated the American character of 1861-65 than any other living man. Therefore he will stand as the typical hero of the great Civil War in America.

„Prayers offered in times of peace are silent conversations,“

—  Paul Simon American musician, songwriter and producer 1941

Wartime Prayers
Song lyrics, Surprise (2006)
Kontextus: Prayers offered in times of peace are silent conversations,
Appeals for love, or love's release, in private invocationsBut all that is changed now.
Gone like a memory from the day before the fires.
People hungry for the voice of God
Hear lunatics and liars.Wartime prayers. Wartime prayers
In every language spoken.
For every family scattered and broken.

„Soldiers are citizens of death's grey land,
Drawing no dividend from time's to-morrows.“

—  Siegfried Sassoon English poet, diarist and memoirist 1886 - 1967

The Counter-Attack and Other Poems (1918)
Kontextus: Soldiers are citizens of death's grey land,
Drawing no dividend from time's to-morrows.
In the great hour of destiny they stand,
Each with his feuds, and jealousies, and sorrows.
